Abstract

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major global concern and due to increased surveillance and recognition of signs and symptoms is now becoming an emerging area of research around the world. While TBI is often caused by a discrete event, such as a blow to the head or blast injury, it results in a broad spectrum injury with a pathology that is poorly understood. This essay seeks to draw out the differences in not only the types, and pathophysiology of TBI but also compare the different groups that are susceptible to TBI. Furthermore this essay will start with a review of animal models used in TBI research, pathophysiology, and public health relevance and differentiate military and civilian TBI. Unlike many diseases traumatic brain injury is something that will be persistent in the population regardless of medical intervention. The more research we initiated to better understand the pathological events of TBI, the more realistic will be our chances to develop an working therapeutic intervention against the deviating consequences of TBI.
